Description

Bookbinding with Cass and PULP: Paper Arts Workshop have teamed up for a weekend workshop that will introduce a range of decorative papermaking and bookbinding techniques - a great opportunity to create a number of unique handmade books, which make for ideal presents just in time for Christmas.

Alison from PULP will work with you on day 1, layering decorative materials with textured pulps to create a range of high quality handmade papers. This is a great opportunity to learn from an experienced papermaker and get creative in Scotland's only open-access papermaking facility.

On day 2 create a collection of hand bound books incorporating some of your papers. Various sizes will be available and a series of decorative exposed bindings, using leather or pleather covers, will be covered. There'll be lots of opportunity to personalise with letter stamps, decorative papers and fancy fastening to ensure your books are both unique and usable! A great way to make a number of personalised Christmas presents, while learning new skills in a creative environment.

This will be a relaxed and informative weekend, where you will have the opportunity to learn new skills in paper and book making, and leave with a number of finished books, plus a stash of lovely papers. A great chance to tick a few homemade Christmas presents off the list and learn the skills to make more at home.

PULP: Paper Art Workshop is a specialised workspace dedicated to paper art and books - it is easy to access, with free parking and is a comfortable space to work in. Tea and coffee will be provided on both days but participants are asked to bring their own packed lunch. Participants are also requested to wear sturdy, non-slip footwear for the first papermaking day and bring a selection of decorative items, such as threads, small drawings / images/ text, petals and similar to include within their papermaking.

Workshop takes place 10am - 4pm on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th December 2019. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch - cassbarron.cb@gmail.com or alison.paperprintbook@gmail.com.
